View Full Version : Cloth fx node match error

07-06-2005, 04:17 AM
Sometimes or 50% of the time that after I do a cloth fx calculation and save the motion to mdd file, and OPEN the scene again ... an error message "node match error" appeared, I wonder what I did wrong, or is it another LW bugs?

Clothfx does a vertex by vertex match, so if your object changes, the motion won't match hence the Node match error. Another good reason to use a lower polygon proxy (which you're less likely to want to modify once the motion is correct).

I did not change any object after saving it, just save, clear the scene and tried to load it again, BANG node match error. And the object is pretty simple actually.

I had the same problem and figured out a fix. Make sure in your object properties that the Geometry Subdivision Order is set to "Last". I forget that on a scene it gave me your error. Also if that doesn't work... Try the Lean Clean Scene Machine plugin. Look for it on flay.com

Hope this helps.
